Musk's Tesla Is Promising the World Clean Energy One Loss at a Time

Archimedes once remarked that if given a lever of sufficient length and a fulcrum against which to place it, he could move the world. Musk’s first Gigafactory, aptly (if unimaginatively) named ‘Gigafactory 1’ is a Nevada-based production facility tasked with nothing less than shifting the world toward clean energy.
